"I asked this question before and NO ONE bothered to answer."

Probably because any answer given would just be speculation. Oh, hang on... ;-)

"well I am considering winning the Lottery - but that doesn't mean it's going to happen ;-)"

The difference between that and CTL considering an open source release being that you can consider winning all you like - but you can't actually decide to win.

"If (and this is a conjecture) RISC OS were to be open sourced - then I'd suspect some parts would be open while others would be "binary only" "

Umm. Quite. That would be why the article refers to 'elements of RISC OS'
